Job Title: Organizing Fellowship 

Teamsters Joint Council 7 represents nearly 100,000 members in 23 Local Unions in 48 counties of Northern California, the Central Valley, and 14 Northern Nevada counties.

The Joint Council is working on a long-term campaign targeting a large corporate employer that has had significant negative impacts on both workers and their surrounding communities. We are seeking organizers who want to expand their skill set through hands-on worker organizing.

  • Leading direct outreach to workers at job sites. 
  • Building engagement and commitment with worker leaders through organizing committees. 
  • Planning and carrying out actions and events to support worker organizing efforts.
  • Maintaining data tracking systems with regular input of new contacts and member participation into a database. 
  • Conducting small to large-scale organizing meetings and events to support organizing efforts.

Qualifications: 

  • Demonstrate commitment to social and economic justice.
  • Excellent interpersonal, listening, oral, and written communication skills.
  • Strong commitment to work with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. 
  • Willingness to work an unconventional schedule, including night hours.
  • Ability to work well with a team, agitate around key issues, and motivate others to take action.
  • Ability to work well under pressure and manage time efficiently. 
  • Understanding of and commitment to a broader working class perspective.
  • Those with language skills in Spanish, Tagalog, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Vietnamese are heavily encouraged to apply.

Applications will only be accepted electronically. Please submit a resume and brief cover letter to jen@teamjc7.org with the subject line “Organizing Fellowship Application.” Interviews will be on a rolling basis and the start date is flexible.
